Iowa Election Results Midterms 2022

Elections 2022

(NewsNation) — NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ has called the U.S. Senate race in Iowa for Chuck Grassley.

Grassley was elected to an eighth term, defeating Democrat Michael Franken and putting himself in position to be the Senate’s most senior member. 

Franken had cast Grassley, 89, as an entrenched politician who has served too long and contributed to Washington partisanship. 

Iowa’s four seats in the U.S. House will all be contested during the midterm elections, but all eyes are on Iowa’s third Congressional district, where Democrats are fighting to hold onto the seat.

There, Republican Zach Nunn defeated incumbent Rep. Cindy Axne, who was the only Democrat working in the D.C. delegation for Iowa.

Abortion and the economy loom large over the race, with Axne accusing Nunn of supporting a total abortion ban with no exceptions; Nunn counters that he supported exceptions while in the state legislature.

On Tuesday, 470 seats in the U.S. Congress (35 Senate seats and all 435 House seats) will be up for election. These elections will determine who has control over the two branches of Congress, and ultimately, who sets the agenda for President Joe Biden’s remaining years in office.
